Do you find yourself wanting?
  • A window into your infant / toddler's mind?
  •  To reduce frustration and temper tantrums?
  • Your toddler to do more than just grunt, point, & cry?
  • To have real conversations, starting at 8-12 months (or even 6 months)?
  • To increase your child's long-term learning potential and IQ (NIH showed a 12 point IQ gain by age 8 in one study)? 

 ...then Signing Smart is for you!

Infant & Toddler Teacher Workshop
Presented by
Tracey Kretzer, MS, LPSC
Lincensed Signing Smart Instructor since 2006

Every teacher must take ongoing classes to keep their license up to date. Why not recommend this class to your child care provider today?   
Encourage your child care center and/or babysitter to sign with your baby or toddler in just seconds a day and increase your child's IQ, ability to communicate, and conflict resolution skills!   
Toddler asks for BALL by signing instead of crying or grabbing!  
 Here a 14 month-old child (behind teacher) signs "BALL" and the toddler gives him the ball!! No crying, no whining, no grabbing, or interrupting the teacher! 
The National Institute of Health (NIH)
showed that babies & toddlers who were signed to as children had an average of
12 point higher IQ
by age 8!
